Find out how we are finding homes for children in Central and East England

In November, we gathered all of our Home for Good Champions online to share our vision and recognise the crucial role they play in helping make our vision a reality. It was a highlight for all of us here at Home for Good! Alisia was delighted to follow the event with a gathering for Champions in her region. She said:

It was great to meet a number of Champions online and hear how they came to be involved with Home for Good. I was blown away by how awesome everyone is, all with a heart for vulnerable children and all 100% committed to partnering with Home for Good to achieve our vision of a home for every child who needs one.

It was a privilege to spend some time in prayer together. We hope that in early 2022 we’ll be able to begin a rhythm of quarterly regional Champion meetings – dates to be confirmed soon, so watch this space, Central and East England Champions!

We’ve been connecting with fostering teams in Stoke to find out more about the needs in the area. We’re thankful to the team in Stoke for sharing insight into some of the challenges they’ve faced in finding suitable foster carers in this area with such a high need.

We are looking forward welcoming a tour with theatre company Riding Lights in the summer. We are looking for possible venues across Central and East of England as we seek to inspire people to open the conversation about caring for vulnerable children and young people through drama. Please get in touch if you think you can help with this opportunity.

What can I be praying for?

Central and East of England Lead Alisia shares:

Never underestimate the power of prayer. I was delighted to receive a text from a friend in a prayer group for parents; she had persuaded her church to donate their Christmas collection to Home for Good - a result of praying for the work! So, keep praying and keep expecting surprises!

We would love you to stand with us in prayer as we continue to work to find a home for every child who needs one in Central and East of England.

  • Please pray for many more foster carers to be found in Stoke on Trent – there is such great need.
  • Give thanks for the amazing support we’ve received from our Champions in the region who share and demonstrate our vision to find a home for every child who needs one.
  • Pray for Alisia as she seeks to connect with more church leaders.
  • Pray for suitable venues to be found for our national theatre tour with Riding Lights in 2022.
Are there any events happening soon that I can attend?
